User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; es-ES; rv:1.7.10) Gecko/20050720 Fedora/1.0.6-1.1.fc4 Firefox/1.0.6
Description of problem:
After the system plays any notification sound artsd uses 100% CPU as described in that link from KDE Bugzilla.
It happened too with the previous version arts-1.4.1
I downloades the SRPMS for version 1.4.1 and version 1.4.2 applied tha patch posted in that page and it seems to work (I tested first the 1.4.1 and after the submmit of an updated package for arts, I tried it but it seems to be failing yet)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
arts-1.4.2-0.fc4.1 i386 and x86_64
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install arts official fc4 updated package
2. try to play any notification sound (from control center by example)
3. top show artsd using the 100% CPU until you kill it
2. logoff an start a new KDE session
3. sometimes you will get a overload CPU message from arts
Actual Results: artsd process uses 100% CPU
Expected Results: artsd process goes back to sleep ;)
it seems to be a know bug for x86_64, i found it in arts 1.4.1 but after release of arts 1.4.2 it's yet there
This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.
Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?
In Fedora Core 6 I don't get anymore this problem.
